Beautiful shots Tony. The detail you manage to capture on the eagle's dark feathers is just fantastic. I would love to see a shot of your blind, as it clearly helping you get some stunning stuff.

Cheers,
Harry C

Thanks, Harry. I use a variety of blinds and which one I use depends on location. I have a couple of commercial blinds, sometimes I use a car blind, sometimes just a cloth draped between a couple of bushes. In remote locations where people seldom venture, I will make a blind out of branches and bush and leave it there permanently, where eventually it will decompose.

Here is a very simple way to make a blind out of scrap material that you can buy for a few dollars. You just need two trees or other objects that you can string a rope or wire between for hanging the blind. I just use wooden cloth pegs to hang the material. I also use large safety pins for pinning back any material.

First, I cut a piece of material about 7' x 7'. Usually I use dark green or brown, which matches the forest in this area. Cut two slits in the middle, one at your standing eyesight level and one at your sitting level. Make these large enough for your lens hood to easily slide through.

Next, I will cut a piece of the same material about 12" square inches with slits cut so that it will easily slip around your lens. This piece will be pinned over whichever slot I am using and close over any gaps through which the bird might see me.

Lastly, you hang this from the wire or rope you have strung between the two objects.

This type of blind is for when you have natural coverage on both sides. If not, I simply add a 3-foot panel at either end, using safety pins.

Another version, instead of cutting the two slits, is just pinning together two 3.5 foot sections and pushing your lens through at whatever height you want.
